Abstract

This report presents the findings of a study into the operation of groups of commercial organisations which come together to reduce the impact of theft, violence, anti-social behaviour and other crimes and associated behaviours on their businesses. We refer to such groups as Business Crime Reduction Schemes (Schemes), a term used in this report to include Business Crime Reduction Partnerships (BCRPs), shopwatch schemes, pubwatch schemes, schemes provided by shopping centres for the benefit of their tenants, and other similar operations. The report draws upon data gathered through a national survey of Scheme managers conducted between October 2018 and January 2019 to consider the design, focus, management, governance, membership and collaborative activities of Schemes and identify the key characteristics, achievements, challenges encountered and points of best practice concerning their activity. These are presented as key findings throughout the report and as a series of guiding principles for such Schemes.
